Learning disabilities

Most of our members provide support to people who have a learning disability. Sometimes this is only available if you get support from your local authority. The Government wants more people who have a learning disability to get into work. Only a few people are working even though most want to. Our members can help you to find the right job for you.

This video talks about why work is important.

More and more people are finding that work changes their lives for the better. This film from Valuing People Now shows four people talking about their work.
